Blue Jackets finish home-and-home sweep of Wings
COLUMBUS 3, DETROIT 2 (OT)

DETROIT (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets are on a roll at the
expense of the Detroit Red Wings.



Ryan Johansen and Matt Calvert scored in the shootout, and the
streaking Blue Jackets beat the Red Wings 3-2 on Sunday to
complete a home-and-home sweep.



Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger had goals in regulation, and
Sergei Bobrovsky made 20 saves through overtime for Columbus,
which has won five straight. The Blue Jackets topped the Red
Wings 3-0 in Columbus on Saturday.



The Blue Jackets are 5-0-2 in their last seven games after
getting only 12 points in their first 19.



"Guys are working really hard," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards
said. "They earned all the points that we've gotten over the
past six, seven games or whatever it is."



Four of the five wins in their streak have come either in
overtime or a shootout.



Columbus went 4-0-1 in the season series with Detroit.



"They've been giving it to us. It's great to come back strong,"
Brassard said.



It will likely be the last divisional game between the teams
because of the NHL's proposed realignment plan that could be in
effect next season. Both the Blue Jackets and Red Wings would
move to the Eastern Conference but to different divisions.



Jakub Kindl and Johan Franzen scored for Detroit in regulation,
and Jimmy Howard stopped 19 shots. Pavel Datsyuk scored the Red
Wings' only goal in the shootout.



"It definitely is frustrating we couldn't pick up the second
point there, but on the bright side we still got one," Howard
said. "They're tough. They play a tough style. They dump the
puck in and then they all fall back in their own zone. All five
of them are just standing there in front of the net, and it's
tough to get pucks through."



Franzen tied it 2-2 with a 5-on-3, power-play goal 25 seconds
into the third period. Franzen fired a one-timer from the inside
edge of the right circle off a pass from Damien Brunner for his
fifth goal.



Johansen was already in the penalty box for slashing when on the
ensuing faceoff, Umberger handled the puck with his hand in the
final minute of the second period.



"If you give them, with their skill players, that much time on a
5-on-3, they're going to capitalize," Johansen said.



The first three goals of the game were scored in a 1:15 span
early in the second period, and the Blue Jackets held a 2-1 lead
after the flurry.



Brassard opened the scoring 3:10 into the second when he beat
Howard with a slap shot from the top of the right circle for his
fourth goal. Kindl tied it with his third goal 30 seconds later
when he beat Bobrovsky from just above the high slot with a slap
shot.



Umberger capitalized on Zetterberg's turnover and ripped a slap
shot past Howard from the top of the right circle to give
Columbus the lead. It was Umberger's fifth goal.



Columbus outshot Detroit 6-4 in the first period. The Blue
Jackets also continued to effectively forecheck the Red Wings as
they did Saturday.



"It's pretty hard to play here, especially back-to-back,"
Brassard said. "We just had to find a way to get off to a good
start. That was the key to the game, the first 10 minutes."



NOTES: Detroit D Ian White returned to the lineup after being a
healthy scratch the previous six games. He replaced rookie Brian
Lashoff, who was a healthy scratch on Sunday. ... Columbus C
Artem Anisimov missed his second game because of a lower body
injury. ... Detroit forward Valtteri Filppula missed his seventh
game due to a shoulder injury.
